: do you think the u.s. as relates to the cease-fire was too effusive in the praise from secretary of state clinton, and now what does the white house do? they have remained quiet. we have a statement from the state department, but nothing from the white house so far. >> i don't think the praise -- morsi's certainly deserving credit to help to broker the peace. and the administration play aid vital role in that and they deserve credit. the larger issue is a revolutionary change in the middle-east. it is the foreign policy surprise of this administration, as 9/11 was for bush. and how we cope with this. our disengagement policy in the middle-east is inviting this change to go in the wrong direction. al qaeda is on the rise, the islamists are on the rise. morsesi looked at iraq and saw al-maliki on the rise. our policy should be all in, keeping with our national interest and keeping with our values and help shape morsi. he is not going away. >> how do you think the president will walk the line of not getting involved in affairs we shouldn't be involved and and stopping the dominoes t
